The Environment in American History

Nature and the Formation of the United States
by Jeff Crane
From pre-European contact to the present day, people living in what is now the United States have constantly manipulated their environment. The use of natural resources – animals, plants, minerals, water, and land – has produced both prosperity and destruction, reshaping the land and human responses to it.




The Environment in American History is a clear and comprehensive account that vividly shows students how the environment played a defining role in the development of American society.

Each chapter includes a selection of primary documents, and the book is supported by a robust companion website that provides further resources for students and instructors. Drawing on current scholarship, Jeff Crane has created a vibrant and engaging survey that is a key resource for all students of American environmental history.
